Magnitude 6.2 Quake Shook Canada's West Coast

Canada West Coast Just Got Magnitude 6.2 Quake --Today got Canada's West Coast on a 6.2 magnitude quake, the Natural Resources Canada said Wednesday night. As of press time, there has been no tsunami warning or damage reports released.
The tremor occured off Vancouver Island in the Pacific ocean, approximately 85 miles southwest of Port Alice, British Columbia.

Early Wednesday morning, a 7.4 magnitude earthquake shook Guatemala, killing at least 48 people.

There has been quite a bunch of quakes happening in the world these days. Let's hope that this one in Canada is not part of a line up of natural calamities to occur, following the tragic sweep of Hurricane Sandy, which shut down New Jersey Transit system, among many other things that came up.

Locally, on August 31, we got a level 3 Tsunami warning for the coastal areas of  Northern Samar, Eastern Samar, Leyte, Southern Leyte, Surigao del Norte and Surigao del Sur. There was also a magnitude 5 quake in Eastern Samar on October 26.
